Students in the Master of International Service degree program following the International Studies Track (MIS:IST) for students from international partner institutions should register for three courses in their first semester:
Concentration courses may be chosen from any of the SIS graduate offerings depending upon the student's individual interests and training needs. A list of suggested concentrations can be found on the back page of the MIS:IST advising worksheet.
Depending upon the number of credits of Advanced Standing awarded upon admission and whether a student is required to take an economics and/or methods course, students take between 9 and 15 credit hours in the concentration, followed by a 3-credit capstone in their second semester.
Skills institutes may only be taken toward the concentration if the student will take more than 9 credits in their concentration.
Amy Newell is the academic advisor for MIS:IST.
